Holy Cross Health Earns National Recognition for Heart Failure and Diabetes Care

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. –Holy Cross Health in Fort Lauderdale was once again nationally recognized by the American Heart Association for its continued success in using the Get With The Guidelines®-Heart Failure and Target: Type 2 Diabetes programs.

Holy Cross Health received the American Heart Association’s Heart Failure GOLD PLUS with Honor Roll and Target: Type 2 Diabetes Honor Roll for applying the most up to date evidence-based treatment guidelines to improve patient care and outcomes in the communities served.

“With compassionate, quality care, our team continues to strive for excellence in delivering advanced treatments that result in positive outcomes for our patients,” said Holy Cross Health President and CEO Mark Doyle.

The goal at Holy Cross is to reduce hospitalizations and improve heart failure patient care by providing intensive personalized therapy, developing individual programs that educate patients about heart failure, optimizing chronic medications and helping patients manage their disease. “We see heart failure management as a team effort, and it is the Holy Cross team that should be applauded for our Gold Plus recognition, which is a true testament that they go above and beyond demonstrating additional measurements to ensure patients receive the absolute best care,” added Doyle.

Holy Cross Health also was recognized with the American Heart Association’s Target: Type 2 Diabetes Honor Roll for meeting quality measures developed with more than 90% of compliance for 12 consecutive months for the “Overall Diabetes Cardiovascular Initiative Composite Score.”

Holy Cross Health has a robust diabetes program that guides patients into making achievable and realistic lifestyle changes to cut their risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The free online portal, Holy Cross's My Body My Health, provides trained lifestyle coaches, video lessons, easy food and activity tracking, 24/7 digital access, and an online community to build support among participants.

“We appreciate the American Heart Association’s acknowledgment of our diabetes programs, which we are very proud of,” Doyle adds. “With education and community outreach, we can have a positive impact on the lives of those who are diabetic or prediabetic.”
